Checkmate!

Checkmate!

I have this bad habit of leaving all my "in need of sewing" type of projects laying around the apartment for ages, until I actually manage to do something about them. Same story goes for this checkered skirt I bought from Ranna last winter, and I can't belive why I've had this beauty hanging in my closet for this long, when all it needed was a little bit of taking in. The skirt gives a nice touch to simple outfits, creating an eye catching detail into the mix. A true new-found gem in the closet!

Yesterday this skirt came to it's own at a friend's housewarming party, where my boyfriend and I headed with the stylish Laura from Drop the Phone and her boyfriend. I love meeting couples who share the same exact interests as my boyfriend and I; while Laura and I talked all night about blogging and what not, the boys found a common ground with music and fashion. How convenient!






T-shirt: Martin Margiela
Blazer: H&M
Skirt: Vintage
Platform wedges: Vagabond
Bag & bracelet: Lindex
Ring: Kalevala Koru

P.S. I try to update as often as I can but I have such a busy month ahead of me, that regular blogging might be a bit difficult during the next weeks. Next weekend there is an electronic music festival, the week after that my Barbie themed b-day party, then another music festival and then there is the Halloween party we are organizing (for the latter I've ordered supplies all the way from the U.S.). So, hang tight!

Grrau, onpas tyylikäs hamonen!!

Ja tyylikäs on blogikin! Eikä minua henk koht haittaa vaikkei päivityksiä satele koko ajan, parempi laatu kuin määrä. On muutenkin niin hirveä informaatiotulva tässä elämässä :D

Hei mistä löysit noi Vagabondit? Oon kiertänyt kaikki Tampereen Vagabond-mekat enkä oo löytänyt mistään, vaikka eiks noi oo just ne tän seasonin Thelmat? Ehkä mun täytyy pikkuhiljaa luovuttaa ja tilata sovittamatta netistä :(

Black and white is still the best combination around. Add the geometrics and it's a fabulous skirt! Glad to have found your blog!

Varpu: Kiitos ja ihana kuulla!:) Tuntuu, että muilla bloggareilla on aikaa päivittää vaikka kuinka usein, niin sitä alkaa potea hieman syyllisyyttä heh.

Maria: Noi kengät on itseasiassa ostettu Tukholman Vagabond-liikkeestä kesällä ja en ole itsekään noita Tampereella missään nähnyt. Helsingin Vagabond-liikkeestä (Kampin ostarissa) kuvittelisin noita löytyvän, mutta jos ei sielläkään, niin netti varmaan on ainoa vaihtoehto. Onnea metsästykseen!:)

Technosunshine: Thanks, me too!:)

Linda sofia: Kiitos kovasti! Minäkin tykkään siitä nyt ihan hurjasti. :)

PUNKIE: Thank you!:)

Ranna: Eikä, en edes muistanut tota! Great minds think alike ja silleen. :) Kiitos kovasti. Tää olis varmaan ollut sullekin ihan passeli pienellä modauksella. Nyt se ei enää ole niin "kello". ;)

Some like it vintage: I'm a lover of black and white, and geometrics of course. ;) That's great to hear, I'm glad you like my blog. :)

NinaV: I think it will be blast! ;) We are partying like it's 1982. Thank you so much, the skirt definitely adds an interesting layer to the mix. :)

Jess: I re-discovered the blazer and the bracelet is a new fave of mine. :) I need to get more arm candy!

Hi !

I have a fashion blog where I introduce my readers with cool bloggers. Are you willing to be one of them ? All you have to do is answers a few questions, as i think it's more interesting to share your thoughts along with the outfit photos i'll post?
if you're okay, just post a comment on my blogspot with your email, and i'll send you the questions ;)
